While everyone is talking about Lewis Hamilton vs Sebastian Vettel, Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas is very much in the reckoning. Just 23 points adrift (with an engine failure to his name), Bottas is in touch with the two superstar contenders. Let us not forget that in 2007 Kimi Raikkonen won the World Title in a similar sort of situation, taking full advantage of Hamilton & Alonso watching each other and winning the championship at the back end of the season.
Sebastian Vettel 177 pts (3 wins)
Lewis Hamilton 176 pts (4 wins)
Valtteri Bottas 154 pts (2 wins)
